mApp Framework problems

G'day all

Am starting to use Monte's mApp framework and have run into a couple of problems:

1. Added a datagrid and this works and displays fine on normal resolution displays but on Retina displays for iPhone + iPad nothing is displayed. Seems sort of strange - just want to check if anyone else has done this ok or not?

2. In testing/playing further, I now seem to have mucked something else up - am certainly getting some unexpected behaviour (Think this error came up after deleting a datagrid from one of the cards in the UI stack, though there are still datagrids on other cards) . When I now open the mainstack or try testing on the simulator, what had previously worked now gives me the error

"Could not find stack"

This error comes from the mApp framework - I can see the code and see that the property (added by the framework)


of my main UI stack is empty, thus resulting in this error. Strange.

If anyone has ideas I'm keen to learn... or else I'll start again and see if I can somehow replicate. 

Thanks for any help!


Alan :-)

p.s. Very much looking forward to that high-priority item on the development list - the beer machine!
